Do Veterans Have a Greater Risk of Developing Mesothelioma?

In some cases yes, veterans do have a higher risk for developing mesothelioma, but it all depends on the work a veteran did during his time in service. There are plenty of veterans who were not exposed to asbestos and they have limited need to worry about mesothelioma. However, many were exposed during their time in any of the four branches of the service and the veteran population has seen more victims of mesothelioma than any other group in the United States.

Who was Affected?

The military used asbestos in hundreds of different ways. This meant that for many soldiers exposure was unavoidable, especially during the World War II years and the Korean Conflict. This was a time when shipbuilding peaked and more than four million Americans worked in shipyards, in the military and as civilians. Many of those working as civilians had already serviced in the military. This also resulted in an increased risk for members of the Navy since they spent more time near shipbuilding than other branches.

In addition to exposure at the shipyards, members of the Navy were also exposed in the ships themselves. Many who worked in the engine rooms, boiler rooms, and galleys of ships experienced asbestos exposure in high amounts every day. In addition to those responsible for the manufacturing of the ships, as well as those who worked on the ships, there is also evidence of people on military bases developing mesothelioma because of second hand exposure from soldiers. Just as wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters have experienced problems from second hand exposure, so have those who were exposed second hand in the military.

Coping with Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a difficult disease to battle. Though there is no cure for any type of cancer, those varieties that are slow moving and able to be detected early often have a better prognosis. Unfortunately, mesothelioma lays dormant for years before developing into full-blown cancer. Once it has developed, the cancer spreads quickly. Most patients do not receive an official diagnosis until the later stages of mesothelioma because symptoms are rare in the disease’s earliest stages. By the time it is recognized, it has already spread beyond its point of origin.

Many who were exposed during their service in the mid-century are now just being diagnosed with mesothelioma. They are visiting doctor’s reporting symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, or pain in the chest. Before a doctor is able to diagnose the symptoms as mesothelioma, he or she must first rule out lesser health issues, such as pneumonia or allergies.

If you visit a doctor with any of these symptoms, make sure he or she knows about your military service. Understand your risk for developing mesothelioma and let your doctor know it is a consideration. While you do not want to rush into something assuming it is cancer, you also do not want to give mesothelioma any more time than necessary to spread. The earlier you detect it, the greater your chance of treating it effectively and extending your life. Speak with your doctor about your risk factors and do what it takes to get an accurate diagnosis.
